Western sources are usually wrong. Of course on can question if there actually is something  like THE original historic rules, as different manuscripts not always agree. So rules might have changed with time and place, like they did for medieval Chess. But since a Teaching King is described as Queen plus Lion Dog, and its move diagram is drawn as that of the Queen with three perpendicular line elements on each move close to the origin, it is pretty certain the LD was more than Q3.

The FF should probably be changed here to conform to this.
